Sound of Music always brings back such fond memories, not only from young childhood cuddled up on the couch with my mom (who, like me, still leaves it on every time she comes across it on television), but from my senior year of high school. My dearest friend in the world (to this day) played Maria, and we had the best time! I was eager to see last night’s rehearsal at Town Hall, because I hadn’t see the show staged since then, and I was thrilled at how well it has all come together. You can’t help but sing along to the songs, and the shows most prominent message still resonates in practically any situation.
So, I will leave you with some great footage shot last night by our new film intern, Alec Williams! Enjoy (and get your tickets)!
The next production in Town Hall Arts Center’s 2012-2013 Season will be The Sound of Music, with Music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. This musical is directed by Robert Wells, choreographed by Kelly Kates, with musical direction by Donna Kolpan Debreceni.
Featured in this production are Rebekah Ortiz as Maria, Keegan Flaugh as Captain von Trapp, and Samantha Jo Staggs as Mother Abbess. This classic musical is based on the memoir of Maria von Trapp, The Story of the von Trapp Family Singers, and features many songs that have become standards, including the title song “The Sound of Music,” “Edelweiss,” “My Favorite Things,” “Climb Ev’ry Moutain,” and “Do-Re-Mi.”
